ISIS Terrorists relased a video today showing the execution of Jordanian pilot Lt Moaz al-Kasasbeh who had been held hostage since his plane came down on December 24th.
The video which they named ‘Healing the Believers Chests’ shows the captured airman wearing an orange jumpsuit and locked in a cage. It is obvious by the bruises on his face that he has been beaten. The video shows a trail of gasoline leading up to the cage which is seen being lit. Flames are seen quickly spreading to the cage where they completely engulf the helpless pilot in images in a scene which is grusome even for ISIS.
This execution was a violation of Islamic law which says
that no one is allowed to burn a body, living or dead except for Allah.
The Jordanian Government had been trying to negotiate for the release of the pilot and their efforts were seemingly rebuffed by the terrorists who refused to provide proof that Moaz al-Kasasbeh was still alive. And with the video we learned that al-Kasasbeh was executed last month on January 3rd.
King Abdullah II of Jordan is currently in the United States on a previously unannounced trip to meet with lawmakers and top American officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry and is expected to fly home immediately.
